Wedding Wednesday: Flower Power!

I know it's been my wedding obsession lately but I am absolutely in LOVE with what is going on in the flower department. I suppose it is because when I originally decided to get flowers they were very, very minimal. As in, I decided we should have bouquets and just that.

Of course, everyone thought I was absurd. I'm just not big on flowers! Mostly it's because I am very freaked out by fern plants, and they are always in with bouquets. I know it's weird but hear me out.

When I was 12, we moved into this house that happened to have two master bedroom and bathrooms. So, I had my own bathroom attached to my bedroom and it was the perfect place to put flowers that people bought me. So, I got some flowers for my birthday and I was excited to put them there and there they stayed - because I'm lazy and also I like to KEEP EVERYTHING. ALL OF THE THINGS. I'm working on this...

So, one day I was touching my things in the bathroom and they had this weird brown stuff on them and I thought there were bugs attacking my room and I would die. Eventually, my mom convinced me they were the spores from the ferns and I need to know WHY THOSE HAVE TO EXIST AND FALL ALL OVER.

It helps that I was probably learning about animal and plant sex organs in class at that time so I was scarred that there were plant sex cells all over my bathroom and I touched them.

So, anyway...back to the wedding...

Iman's cousin has saved me! She is the best, best lady ever! I love her and I am so happy to be getting to know her better. Thanks to her we have some exciting flower things going along. Which I will now show you. All pictures are from Pinterest.



Somehow these little glass balls will be filled with little daisies to decorate the arch. These are the ideas of his cousin, but the end result is still in her creative brain! 


Sunflowers at the end of the rows! 


I just love sunflower balls! We could totally use fake ones, too

of course I have shared these from Muffin Tin Mom before. We are putting a little twist on them, but I am just so excited for all of the cuteness! 

So basically, there is a mixture of daisies (red and yellow, big and small); sunflowers; yellow roses (reserved for Iman and I) and some various fillers like billyballs (omg, I love it) and small flowers that look like daisies!

This weekend also ended with most of the invites done and addressed (a few left to do), groomsmen and groom fitted and styles picked out, most everything left to buy for decorations/misc, and my MOH got her dress. The girls will have their dresses bought by the end of the month.

IT IS CRAZY THERE ARE LESS THAN THREE MONTHS LEFT!!!

  4. AHH! So soon! We are at the 5 month mark and I'm kinda freaking out just a smidge. I can't believe it is so close. Speaking of which, I need to email my coordinator about something. HA! YAH for getting flowers! We are meeting up with florists in February and I can't wait to have that booked and done. I love checking things off the list.


    Thanks for linking up!

  5. I almost did that glass flower wall thing in my room when I last designed it. Its harder than it looks because the glass balls are very heavy or at least the ones I kept finding.

  6. This is going to be stunning. Yellow roses are my absolute favorite! If I had carried a live flower bouquet, I would have definitely carried those!

  7. Oh wow so many things! I'm jealous you have your invites finished! I'm still waiting for mine to arrive. It will take me AGES to address all 125 of them!


    Anyway, I'm so excited that you're excited about flowers! I was not too keen on them for our wedding, too, because they are so overpriced. However, once I really started to plan it out I got all girly about it and now I'm just really excited, too.


    Also, I died about your fern story. Hilarious! :)

  8. instead of handwriting the addresses, I made stickers. I am super horrible at addressing envelopes, I always end up writing on a slant. Not as pretty, but that's okay! I love that we were the same way about flowers!!!
